LAI 523SEM Social Studies Curriculum


In this seminar, intended for practicing teachers and others interested in curriculum questions, students examine various, persisting curriculum issues and their current incarnations in social studies education, K-12. A major part of the course will be a Curriculum Clinic in which pairs of students, or groups of three or four, work together to (1) design a "braided" curriculum segment, (2) try out their curriculum segment in at least one elementary, middle, or secondary school class, (3) monitor and analyze what happens, and (4) suggest data-based modifications for the future. So, we will not merely read and talk about curriculum; we'll be doing curriculum and studying our own curriculum practice. Students can expect to gain a richer understanding of curriculum research, theory, design, practice, and improvement as well as practical knowledge and skill in doing curriculum.
